Easy Lasagna Soup
From the recipe collection of Tara Ippolito
This easy lasagna soup became an instant family hit in my house.
I saw different variations of this recipe all over my Tik Tok for you page.
I tracked it down to one viral video that started the whole trend from @gigishomemaking.
Watch the original recipe video here: VIRAL LASAGNA SOUP
I knew immediately that I had to make this.
It was perfect timing, too. The temperature here in New Jersey is staring to drop.
These cold nights are perfect for a soup like this.
It’s so warm and filling. Comfort food all the way.
This was way easier than putting together a whole lasagna, too.
Half the hassle also. I love lasagna but assembling them can be a pain in the butt sometimes.
Another great reason to make this easy lasagna soup recipe is that it gives you something to do with those broken sheets!
If you’re looking for a delicious and easy soup to fill you up this winter this one is it.
I hope you like it just as much as my family did.

What tomato sauce should I use?
The tomato sauce you use is completely up to you.
I used Rao’s Homemade for this recipe because I think they’re a great quality sauce.
Any brand tomato sauce would work so use your favorite.
You don’t need to use jarred sauce either though.
If you have your own tomato sauce recipe that would be great for this recipe.

What Alfredo Sauce Should I Use?
Alfredo sauce is tricky for me.
I think a lot of the jarred ones aren’t great. I hate to name names because our tastes may be different.
But I will say that I love Rao’s Honemade Alfredo sauce.
It’s the best jarred one that I’ve had by far.
So if you’re looking for recommendation that’s mine for sure.
As always, use whatever brand you like or make your own.

Is There A Substitute For The Alfredo Sauce?
The Alfredo was an alteration that I made from original lasagna soup recipe that I had seen
I didn’t have any heavy cream like the recipe called for.
So I substituted it with the Alfredo sauce.
I though it was absolutely delicious but if you don’t like Alfredo or just don’t want to use it for whatever reason try the cream or omit it completely.
What other meat can I use?
This lasagna soup recipe calls for ground beef and a little crumbled Italian sausage.
If you’d like to use all ground beef or all sausage that’s totally fine.
Ground turkey, ground chicken and ground veal would all work very well here, too.
Use whatever your favorite is.
Do I have to use lasagna sheets?
That’s a tricky one because the answer is yes and no.
This is lasagna soup so that’s an important part if you want people to make the connection visually while they’re eating.
If that’s not important to you and pasta is pasta in your mind then use whatever you’d like!
